Number 4 seed Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina won their second Grand Slam doubles title. The Russians rallied from down a set and break to beat Martina Hingis and Flavia Pennetta 2-6, 6-3, 6-2.

Playing doubles in her latest comeback from retirement, the 33-year-old Hingis was in her first major final since the 2002 Australian Open. She has won nine Grand Slam doubles titles to go with her five major singles championships.

Makarova and Vesnina also won the 2013 French Open. Dave “Koz” Kozlowski caught up with the champions Saturday night after their victory.
